(Excerpted from LBJ: From Mastermind to The Colossus)
By 1992, Clint Peoples, previously a captain in the Texas Rangers, had become a US Marshal. As he continued his investigation of the Henry Marshall murder he discovered explosive new evidence that a previously unidentified fingerprint found on a box in the “sniper’s nest” on the afternoon of the John Kennedy assassination was a match to the 1951 fingerprint of Malcolm Wallace, Lyndon Johnson’s hit man. Marshal Peoples planned to announce this finding at a press conference and intended to explain to the world the significance of this finding and how it proved Johnson’s involvement in the assassination.
By this point, Lyndon had been dead for nearly twenty years, yet his deadly reach was still very much still functioning. He had placed different aides in key positions around the country with the understanding that their long-term mission was to protect his image, reputation and “legacy.”
In the case of Clint Peoples, who had been the bane of their existence for as long as they could remember, the plan to finally shut him up would have been an adaptation of one of their “off the shelf” methods of a guaranteed “accident.”
But in this case the event was inadvertently witnessed by someone who instinctively, and immediately, knew that what she saw put herself in jeopardy, as another person “who knew too much” and was thus afraid to show herself publicly. Clint Peoples’ assistant, a lady named “Georgia,” decided to cooperate with French researcher William Reymond for his 2003 French book and video referenced previously, though she was clearly scared of publicity and refused to allow her full name to be revealed.
As the interview progressed, she proceeded to make a startling statement about the purported automobile “accident” that took Clint Peoples’ life just a few days before he planned to conduct a press conference announcing his discovery of Mac Wallace’s fingerprint. She stated that when she went to the funeral home for the viewing, a woman came up to her and told her not to tell anyone else, but that she had witnessed the entire incident; she said it was no “accident,” because Clint’s car was pushed off the road from behind by a “big red truck” and the weather was clear, the road was dry. The driver of the truck did it intentionally, she said, and then left the scene. 
Georgia continued the interview, admitting that she was too afraid to go look at the car in the salvage yard to see if the back bumper showed any evidence of being scratched or dented by the red truck. She ended her statement by saying she didn’t want to get involved in it, because, “Too many people have been killed.” 
The discovery of the fingerprint that Peoples intended to announce at the press conference apparently was acquired subsequently by the late Austin, Texas researcher J. Harrison, whose records were given to Walt Brown; Brown announced the finding in 1998 after the analysis was certified by Nathan Darby, a fingerprint expert retired from the Austin police department. Some researchers, whose objectives may be influenced by ulterior motives, have questioned the competence of the late Nathan Darby, stating on certain internet venues that he “wasn’t certified.” [This text was written before Joan Mellen made the same claim in her 2016 book Faustian Bargains, which has since been discredited by Richard Bartholomew and further debunked by David Denton]. 
However, as Barr McClellan took the time in his book to demonstrate, Travis County district judges Mace B. Thurman Jr. and Tom Blackwell, in recommending Mr. Darby for certification as a fingerprint expert in 1978, stated that he had testified in their courts “numerous times” and “With his vast experience in fingerprints, there has never been a question as to whether he could qualify to testify as an expert. . . . I sincerely feel that he should be certified as a fingerprint expert.” He was subsequently given the honor of being certified by the International Association for Identification on November 6, 1978.
Evidently, some people believe that once such a person retires from their profession, their knowledge immediately stops and such certifications are declared null and void. Such profound analysis takes the concept of “critical thinking” skills to new (albeit lower) levels.
Nathan Darby’s expert opinion on that fingerprint was that it matched that of Mac Wallace on at least thirty-four points; according to the statements proffered on the video “The Guilty Men” (Part 9 of the series The Men Who Killed Kennedy), matching only six points can be sufficient for conviction. Mr. Darby’s part of the video can be found on many internet web sites, including the video “The Guilty Men.” This video was immediately banned from further rebroadcasts by The History Channel after being attacked by Johnson’s ex-sycophants.
Though this segment is now well known to many researchers, as well as the many viewers of it since it first aired in 2003, it was stunning news at that time; eleven years earlier, in 1992 just as the movie JFK was being promoted, it would have been even more shocking, and certain people did not want the persistent Clint Peoples to make this finding public. Based upon this eyewitness testimony and the most elemental “common sense” intuition of most rational and objective observers, it is hard to deny the probability that someone ordered Mr. Peoples eliminated by “extreme prejudice.” If the testimony of this eye witness is true—a conclusion that is really the only realistic explanation, with the possible exception that the pickup driver who ran him off the road was just another drunken redneck (which does evoke images of the ghost of Lyndon Johnson himself)—the only plausible explanation is that LBJ’s unknown secret “protectors” made a decision that was identical to Johnson’s when he ordered the murder of Henry Marshall back in 1961: “He’s got to go.”
It is the totality of all the anomalies identified throughout [the book]— from the original, absurd and outrageous 1961 finding of “suicide” in the case of Henry Marshall, to the stacking of the 1962 grand jury by Sheriff Howard Stegall, and Barefoot Sanders’s cross-jurisdictional involvement in that jury for the purpose of evidence censorship and jury manipulation—that explains why Johnson was so desperate: He went to such great lengths for the singular purpose of keeping the cause of death of Henry Marshall a “suicide.” His maneuver obviously worked because it impeded Captain Peoples’ investigation and bought Johnson enough time to live another decade and complete his dream of becoming president. Justice would eventually come for Henry Marshall’s family, but it would not be in time to save John F. Kennedy and thousands of other Americans. And the untold millions of people in other parts of the world.
[Amended for the Blog: Given what we know about the long-term feud between Clint Peoples and his nemesis, Federal Judge Barefoot Sanders — who, until he died in 2008, was still protecting the tainted “legacy” of Lyndon Johnson as his loyal sycophant decades after Johnson died, as detailed here — it puts Sanders at the top of the list of “most likely suspects” for who ordered that hit].

Paris, Flammarion, 2003, pp. 282–283 and referenced in the English version of an untitled video shown at The Conspiracy Museum, Nov. 2003 (Produced by William Reymond and Tom Bowden, with Billie Sol Estes). That English-spoken original video was embedded into a widely distributed French film titled “JFK—Autopsie d’un complot [Autopsy of a conspiracy]—John Fitzgerald Kennedy” that emerged about the same time as Reymond’s book (2003). It was also done only in French and sold for a short period on the internet before disappearing until November, 2014, when it reappeared for free viewing on the website Dailymotion.com (see here).
 Mellen’s claims were first thoroughly discredited by Richard Bartholomew in Chapter 17 of his 2018 book The Deep State in the Heart of Texas, and again further rebutted by David Denton in his 2019 essay Nexus Redux, republished in 2020 within his book Essays on The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy under the subtitle, “Joan Mellen Did Not Debunk the Idea of LBJ’s Complicity in the Murder of JFK”.
